Encounter 6-weight 9'6" Fly Rod Outfit

This 6 Wt. affordable fly rod is ideal for bigger freshwater applications.

Details

Instead of the term “entry level,” we prefer to describe our new Encounter rod outfits as “affordable awesomeness.” Built for the hardcore angler, yet priced with frugality in mind, the Encounter rod series combines state-of-the-art rod design with a smooth, crisp performance—packaged with a large arbor Encounter reel, weight-forward floating line, backing, and leader. The 9'6" 6-weight Encounter rod outfit is a powerful big-water trout rod with that extra length that's perfect for reaching out on long mends or high-stick nymphing. Excellent option for stillwater as well. Go with confidence and a wallet that's still intact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rod. Sweet mending, easy casting big foam dries (fast tip flex), light enough for high-stick nymphing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not have been more pleased! I purchased the Encounter fly combo as my first fly rod. i wanted something i could bass fish with and maybe trout fish with when my family goes on trips. Since the bass in my area are fairly small (the largest i've caught here is 4 1/2 lbs) i figured a 6 weight would be enough and sure enough it was! i love the reel on the encounter! the drag system works great and it was already pre lined with dacron backing, fly line, and leader! this definitely saved me money and time! The rod itself is very flexible and light! the case the rod came is very well made and the reel came in a nice pouch! Definitely got my money's worth! It shiped several days faster than the estimated time frame it gave me too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing but outstanding Picked this up after having hook setting problems with my 10' 3wt. First outing hooked and landed 15 Browns, Bows, and Cuts. No casting issues and everything that took the flies I was throwing came to net.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Orvis Brand With a branding such as Orvis you know you are getting a quality product and that is as it is with this rod. If you are thinking about buying it but figure a rod that's a few pounds cheaper in another brand will do what this rod does you are fooling yourself. This rod is a class above rods twice its price and there is not a rod below the price that can come near it for looks, feel or performance be you a beginner or someone who wants a quality brand name without paying the earth for it, you are catered for with this rod. Niggle, well yes I have one why put a reel with a rod like this that you do not list a spare spool for and fail to reply to a customer asking you "what gives with a reel less than 7 days old and you cannot get a spare spool for it"? Orvis you have supplied a rod at the top of its class but left me feeling cheated that the spools for this reel seem to be discontinued and that's not "Good Business Sense" we buyers have long memories and when we get stung like this we tend to look elsewhere in the future, take note! I would be interested in seeing a response to this review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I can reach!! I was hopping to get a good 60 foot cast with this set up. I have enjoyed the fact that with this 9'-6" rod nymphing is a ton better with this rod and reel combo. This rod is perfect for high sticking. I have caught over 45 fish this first month
